Aloo Raita ( Spiced Yogurt with Potatoes)

This side dish is quick to make and tastes great. I often make this raita as my family loves potatoes and any dish with potatoes is always a big hit ! This goes well with curries , lentils and especially with whole wheat tortilla and any sauteed vegetables. This is an excellent snack for those who are fasting during navratras.
